Costa Concordia (RETIRED) 548
7 Night Western Mediterranean (Rome Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 17, 2008
Ship: Costa Concordia (RETIRED) 548
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 9 years ago
Boarding was a pleasure compared to the Costa Ancient Treasures trip to Istanbul. The cabins at the back were great (180 degree view) BUT we were too close to the Londra Lounge which made loud noise till 1-2am each morning. The ship is beautuiful, with everything you need, The gym was a bit dissapointing compared to the one on the Costa Meditteranea or Atlantica The food was fantastic and the service excellent - we found the staff all round superb The tour gourp organisation was good except that with few english speaking guests we were limited

A bit small but this is cruise after all - the balcony at the back was fantastic and we could open our interleading door and have an extra large balcony to share with our travel companions
